It’s very nice to be home! 13 hours of backseat driving all the way from TN to PA is enough to unsettle any man! There were a large number of icy road conditions signs from the ice storms of the day before throughout VA which didn’t help matters, but we finally arrived home. The first thing I did upon awakening was to grab my Manhattan Cutlery razor, my A&E software, my Muhle 2011 R41 safety razor, and my Alpha Shaving 400 Tribute brush fitted with a hybrid knot ferrule. The mug and dome shaves easily put the baby to bed, and left me refreshed, clean and velveteen smooth! The post shave skin feel from the A&E Shaving Butter and Post-Shave Serum was the icing on the cake.

Blade: Personna Platinum Chrome (15)
ASL: TFS Mandarino Tachibana

An excellent shave. :biggrin:

That was the final shave of my Timeless Slim trial (30 consecutive shaves). It's definitely a superb razor, and it's jumped onto the podium... but I'm not sure if it's going to push the Worlds Finest Safety Razor off the Number 1 spot. I'll use the WFSR next shave and make my decision then.

After 25 shaves with my latest Omega Mixed Midget I decided to give it a rest and give my Semogue Mistura some love. Wow! Night and day. I think I can safely say that the Semogue Mistura is the best brush I own (and that's saying A LOT). If only I could get the Semogue in an 18mm knot it would be perfect (for me).

Happy shaves guys. :cornut:
